GNU xorriso 1.1.0 released
be invited to try the release 1.1.0 of GNU xorriso, a ISO 9660 Rock Ridge
filesystem manipulator. Available on GNU FTP mirrors as
It creates, loads, manipulates and writes ISO 9660 filesystem images with
Rock Ridge extensions. Optionally it supports hard links, ACLs, xattr,
and MD5 checksums.
xorriso can load the management information of existing ISO images and it
writes the session results to optical media or to filesystem objects.
Vice versa xorriso is able to copy file objects from ISO 9660 filesystems
A special property of xorriso is that it needs neither an external ISO 9660
formatter program nor an external burn program for CD, DVD or BD but rather
incorporates the libraries of libburnia-project.org .
This release of GNU xorriso has a lower consumption of stack memory.
Statical program analysis found some rarely occuring memory leaks.
Several small bugs were fixed.
* Bug fix: -mount_opts shared worked only with -osirrox o_excl_off
* Bug fix: Production of MIPS bootable images caused SIGSEGV
* Bug fix: xorriso command -add_plainly "any" did not add all files to the image
* Bug fix: The attempt to blank already blank DVD-RW was not gracefully blocked
* Bug fix: -as mkisofs -isohybrid-mbr without -no-pad was not cylinder aligned
* Bug fix: -format as_needed for DVD-RW could fail on Pioneer drives
* New option -signal_handling
* New option -close_damaged
- GNU/Linux: kernel 2.4 or 2.6, libc, libpthread
- FreeBSD : libc, libpthread, libiconv, IDE and SATA drives need atapicam
- Solaris : libc, libpthread
- on other X/Open systems there will be no direct operation of
CD/DVD/BD drives, but only POSIX i/o which may or may not
be offered by the system for DVD-RAM, DVD+RW, or BD-RE.
